Turns out Romney was right on Mali

by Clifford F. Thies

Romney on Mali:
"With the Arab Spring came a great deal of hope that there would be a change towards more moderation and opportunity for greater participation on the part of women and — and public life and in economic life in the Middle East.

"But instead we've seen in nation after nation a number of disturbing events. Of course, we see in Syria 30,000 civilians having been killed by the military there. We see in — in — in Libya an attack apparently by — well, I think we know now by terrorists of some kind against — against our people there, four people dead. Our hearts and minds go to them. Mali has been taken over, the northern part of Mali, by al-Qaida-type individuals. We have in — in Egypt a Muslim Brotherhood president."
Mitt Romney , Second Presidential Debate, October 22, 2012, Boca Raton, Florida

Instead of choosing Romney, the American people re-elected President Obama, architect of the "ostrich defense."
